Why an Air Purification System is Beneficial to Your Health

February 21, 2019 Uncategorized

The quality of air that circulates throughout your home can have a significant impact on your health. In recent years, more and more homes have been designed to become energy-efficient. While that is definitely an upside, but tightly built homes lack proper ventilation, leaving behind dangerous contaminants confined inside.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental risks to the public. If you’re one of the many Americans who spend 90 percent of their time indoors, you should have more reason to consider purifying your indoor air.

Symptoms of an Aging Furnace

February 14, 2019 Uncategorized

Every piece of equipment in your home is prone to wear and tear. As much as you’d hate it, a time will come when you would have to replace one of your household machines — including your furnace. While proper maintenance and timely repair increase the lifespan of your unit, but still, at some point, it’s going to retire. On average, household furnaces have a life expectancy of about 15 years, depending on the quality of maintenance.

The only consolation you can have is that before your furnace officially stops working, it will exhibit warning signs. Paying attention to these signs helps you know when is the right time to call your preferred HVAC contractor. By being cognizant of these signs, you will also save a lot of money in the long run.

Why Ductless Systems are Perfect for Any Home

February 12, 2019 Uncategorized

Highlighting the Lennox MS8C Mini-Split Air Conditioner

Some of the most common HVAC problems can be traced back to faulty ducts. Poor airflow is one of the major problems associated with ductwork deficiencies. When your ducts are dirty or clogged, the space you’re trying to heat or cool won’t get the desired temperature. If your ducts are leaking, a portion of the conditioned air will not make it where you need it in your home.

Having hot and cold spots in your home is another problem caused by malfunctioning ducts. There is a noticeable difference in the temperature between two rooms, with one being comfortable and the other either too hot or too cold. This is possibly caused by a hole in the air duct, which is a common source of HVAC problems.
